About West Soar

West Soar provides 5-star luxury in a stunning location, sleeping up to ten guests in five beautiful bedrooms. It enjoys magnificent ocean views and is a short walk away from the sandy beach at Soar Mill Cove. The house is just a few steps from the Soar Mill Cove Hotel, and guests benefit from the use of the hotel’s superb bar and restaurant, awarded two rosettes for culinary excellence by the AA, and leisure facilities. West Soar offers the space and privacy of a holiday home with the convenience of a hotel - what more could you ask for!

You do not have to be a keen rambler to appreciate the location of West Soar. Step outside the door and walk through a private meadow and you will find yourself in 2,000 acres of National Trust countryside with endless miles of footpaths to explore, including the South West Coast Path which leads to world-class beaches where you can swim, surf, sail, kiteboard and fish.

Malborough is only two miles away - you can walk or cycle if you want to leave the car behind. Not to be mistaken with the Wiltshire market town of a similar name, Malborough is a charming village with a friendly pub, The Royal Oak, which is popular with locals and visitors, and a good alternative if you do not feel like cooking or eating at the restaurant next door. Kingsbridge is an attractive market town with a high street lined with independent boutiques, antique and curio shops, and cafes, pubs and restaurants serving food using regional ingredients. A walk to the Start Point Lighthouse is an excellent way to spend a few hours on a sunny day, but there is a car park around three-quarters of a mile from the building so you can drive most of way if you prefer.

Salcombe, with its gorgeous beach and harbour, is less than five miles from West Soar. It is a vibrant town with excellent amenities, shops, pubs and cafes. Salcombe is a good place to hire a boat or canoe so you can explore the coastline by water as well as by land. Dartmouth, another thriving town with an active sailing community, is around 15-miles away, giving seafarers even more opportunity to indulge in their passion.

Whether you want to give your children a traditional bucket-and-spade holiday experience, catch up with friends and family over leisurely walks and relaxed meals, or simply want to enjoy the best the south coast can offer, West Soar is a luxuriously comfortable holiday home that will make your holiday memories even better.

Location (Devon)

Accommodation Comprises:

West Soar is next to the Soar Mill Cove Hotel where guests can enjoy access to the extensive leisure facilities free of charge, as well as a 10% discount on meals in the excellent restaurant and spa treatments. Although it is near the hotel, the house is set in its own grounds that are peaceful and private and decorated to the highest standard, with the attention to detail you would expect from a 5-star property.

Ground Floor:

All bedrooms include Devon wool duvets and British-made Hypnose beds, and have their own television.

  • A large entrance hall welcomes you into the house before you move into the living room and sun room. This generous space is partially open plan, providing a lovely place where everyone can relax and socialise, or find a quiet corner to read or chat.
  • Comfortable couches face a wall-mounted television and DVD player. A chic gas fire takes the chill off cold evenings, allowing you to enjoy the magnificent ocean views and feel cosy even in the winter.
  • The large country kitchen has a double oven and six-burner hob, large fridge/freezer and dishwasher, to make self catering a breeze. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped but guests can also make use of the hotel's room service. A scrubbed pine table is perfect for lazy breakfasts and kitchen suppers, and provides additional bench space for preparing food.
  • An elegant dining room with contemporary oak furniture is ideal for more formal meals.
  • The games room is perfect for young and old. It stretches the length of the house and includes table football, table tennis, books and board games.
  • A utility room has a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board. There is also a separate store room for luggage, boots and bulky items.
  • The downstairs shower room has a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.

First Floor:

  • The master suite is impressive, with a super-kingsize bed, large wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table. French doors open on to a balcony and there are sea views from the triple aspect windows. The ensuite has a bath, separate walk in power shower, WC and handbasin.
  • Second double bedroom which also has fantastic views of the cliffs and ocean.
  • The first of the twin-bedrooms has good storage and stunning ocean views.
  • Bunk bedroom which is perfect for young children and teenagers. A tall wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ample storage, while the window overlooks the lush countryside.
  • A family bathroom has a bath with shower above, WC and handbasin.

Second Floor:

  • A fifth bedroom is tucked away under the eaves. It can either be set up as a small twin room or a more generous single bedroom. It is quiet, with calming views of the surrounding countryside.

Outside: The garden is fenced to make it safe for children and dogs. Patio areas, garden furniture and a barbecue are perfect for the summer. An outdoor hot tub is ideal for soaking aching muscles or simply indulging in some "me" time. There is off-street parking for two cars. Guests are welcome to use the leisure facilities at the neighbouring hotel. These include an indoor heated swimming pool, grass tennis court, children's play area, and a fun Pitch-and-Putt course.

Additional Information: The property has WiFi and central heating throughout. All utilities, linen and towels are included, though guests are kindly requested to bring towels for the beach and swimming pool. A cot and high chair are available on request. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome at no extra charge. Short breaks are possible depending on availability. The hotel's Ocean View Villas can be booked together with West Soar to accommodate up to twenty two people.
